CPD has been the innovative leader in training public diplomats, scholars and communication professionals for over 15 years. Our training utilizes the latest social science research and cutting-edge communication tools in real-time public diplomacy challenges. It provides a setting for practitioners to re-examine and refine their skills in a group of peers and to build an international network of colleagues. These programs are highly interactive, allow for collaborations with colleagues and feature an engaging, forward-looking curriculum.

As usual, our online workshops take a deep dive into some of the most critical issues in designing effective and sophisticated public diplomacy strategies with our leading scholars and experts. Sessions are fast-paced and also allow for personalization, as participants bring real-time projects to exercise their skills and problem-solve with faculty and peer participants.

With this Spring 2022 CPD Mini-Course lineup, please note the ways in which our training differs from others:

  • Discounts for USC alumni (applicants must complete that section on the application form and notify us at cpdevent@usc.edu);
  • Discounts for organizations who send 3+ or more participants to a program;
